If you want proof that the Tampa Bay area high school theatre departments not only can go neck and neck with other theatre departments anywhere, but actually surpass them, then make sure to attend the next Broadway Star of the Future showcase. Some of the best talent you will ever experience is on display. This year, 43 high school productions (36 of which were musicals) and 700 participants from 31 schools from as far south as Naples and as far north as New Port Richey had been adjudicated beforehand. And two young performers would be chosen to represent the area by going to New York City later this summer and vie for the prestigious Jimmy Awards, but more about that later.

At the Broadway Star of the Future Showcase in Tampa, Winners of Best Performance by an Outstanding Actor and Best Performance by an Outstanding Actress will be selected. Winners are then invited to attend the Jimmy Awards / National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City, expenses paid. Participants experience a week of private coaching, master classes, and rehearsals with theatre professionals and they receive opportunities for merit scholarships, professional advancement, and other prizes.
